An Inspiration to Us All
Saturday, January 31, 2009
When ever I need a little inspiration, I just look to my friend, who goes thru so much. On a daily basis she is faced with life or death decisions. If she drinks to much it is dangerous. If she eats the wrong foods, it is dangerous. For me, it is a matter of , do I want this or not? How long do I have to ride my bike to work it off? Which part of my body will it stick to? For her the choice can be a matter of life and death. When I start to feel sorry for myself , Alls I have to do is remember what choices she makes everyday and mine are easy.
I'm not writing this to make everybody feel sorry for Marla. It is a tribute to the strength she shows everyday. Getting out of bed, making good choices for herself. She has no choice but to do the right thing. The wrong thing could be deadly for her.
I guess what I'm trying to say, and probably not very well, is how much she means to me and that I am so proud to call her my friend and I hope that she feels the same way.
So the next time that you struggle over that decision of whether ornot to eat that cookie, remember that there are people who struggle with the same decision, who don't have the same options as we do.
Marla, I love you and want you to get those spirits up. We are all behind you and want this to have a happy ending for you.
